Canoe stolen by Lewis and Clark returned to Indian tribe

Descendants of Clark and others donated money to have a replica canoe built to replace the one stolen from Clatsop Indians in 1806.

Ray Gardner, chairman of the Chinook Nation’s tribal council, said the return of the canoe is a ‘good place to begin healing.’

‘It’s nice to see a circle completed,’ Gardner said.
